Born to Win is the grimly ironic title of this jet-black comedy about heroin addicts. George Segal plays Jay Jay, an ex-hairdresser who struggles to support his expensive drug habit. To avoid arrest, Jay Jay turns narc, informing on his fellow junkies. Eventually Jay Jay's sense of self-hatred threatens to overwhelm him.

Also released as Born to Lose and Addict, Born to Win was the first American film for Czech director Ivan Passer.
